The Manicure, Marina Shaltout - Date - Date

My work employs video, sculpture and installation to tell narratives of proverbial female transgressions. my campy aesthetic mirrors the absurdities of gendered stereotypes throughout history, cinema and pop culture.

‘The Manicure’ is a vignette that could be semingly pulled from any monster movie. Creepy, yet stylish, this manicured claw reflects the contemporary anxietes of being a woman.
